Portrait of Amelia – 11 x 14 inch mixed media on stretched canvas
I am still loving the allure of black and white…loving that dramatic feeling it brings to these portraits. In this one, I added collage first after I painted the portrait, in the form of those smaller flowers. Those are napkins I found at the store. I decided I wanted one large flower behind her, so tried to mimic the look of the smaller flowers. I think it works…she is still the focal image of this painting, but she looks stunning surrounded by that bold color.
She is now varnished and ready for a new home. You can find her on my Etsy shop, ArtcyLucy. Clicking on any of the photos will send you there. If you have any questions about this painting, just email me at ArtcyLucy@aol.com
